I usually do them if it's not too complicated. If I can find a video on ehow or youtube for what I need to do I will do it myself.
When we sold our last house there were two toilet valves leaking (it was the thing that refills the tank) and we had a water heater that was leaking. The water heater was covered under a warranty but the toilets weren't. The plumber guy that did the water heater quoted me $300 for each toilet repair. I looked it up online and watched a couple of instructional videos and did the repairs myself. It took about an hour and a half to replace both of them and the parts cost me around $35 and that included flex hoses to replace the hard metal tube.
